    Along with AFI Top 25 theme, how about Citizen Kane? I am truly amazed that it was listed at numero uno. Rosebud....

    I've been disappointed with a lot of movies, but right now I can't think of too many!

    I did the same exact thing. That's how Casablanca got on my list actually (after seeing it shown in soooooo many modern movies, I figured it would be the best thing ever... I just couldn't get into it, although I do like the "choice" that has to be made at the end)

    Moulin Rouge for me - seems it was a 'love it/hate it' kinda movie because I meet people all the time who rave about it, and also people who hated it, like me!! I even left the movie before the end, which I NEVER do, since watching movies and reading are my two favourite things!!

    I think it felt a little too 'try hard' for me - I'm a child of the Rocky Horror era, which was a small-time movie that rose to cult status - it seemed MR was trying to do something similar, but trying too hard IM (humble) O!!

    Oh, Hazy, definitely agree on Titanic, Beautiful Mind and The English Patient (yawn!)

    I'm one of those people who rave about and love MR. But it's all good.

    damn... not that one smart guy can fix a school's stereotype... i'm actually a "damn yankee" and never really got the whole auburn- alabama thing until i went there...

    i was only at Bama for 2 1/2 years for graduate school...

    man, i just had another overrated movie from the AFI top 25 and it slips me now...

    It is a little overhyped. I moved to Alabama when I was 15 and couldn't believe how maniacal some people are about it. I do like to watch the games though, always good fun.
